Page 620. 1972 Honda SS50Z Moped. Low Mileage. Excellent Condition

1972 Honda SS50Z Moped.

Low Mileage (7025)

Excellent Original Unrestored Condition

 

 

This machine was apparently given to a college lecturer in Sussex in 1972 as a retirement present. He didn’t use it much, and several years later it was put it into dry storage. The previous owner bought it in 2008 and put it on the road for his son. I purchased it from him this year, since when it has been thoroughly mechanically restored. It looks like the paintwork is the original, unrestored. The chrome is good all round.

My mechanic’s inspection has revealed only a few minor things wrong with it. The foam inside the seat is breaking up, though it’s completely usable; the saddle is good externally, but one day will require new foam. There are some later nuts and bolts on the exhaust system. The front mudguard has some minor damage on the front nearside, though it’s hard to see in the photos. There’s a blemish in the petrol tank on the front offside.

The bike is not concours sahowroom condition, but it’s extremely good, and partticularly so for an unrestored example.

There’s a V5C Registration Document.

It is currently MOT’d, but I’ll get a new MOT for it on sale.

It’s currently taxed – which is ‘Historic’ class so is free.
